Event description

Description

How are genes, proteins, and smart phones shaping the way we tackle disease? Is wearable technology such as the Apple Watch, which can monitor people for signs of stroke/heart attack and alert health services automatically, the future? What are the emerging ethical issues around digital health data, different risk profiles, and can they be overcome? What is the future of screening, and what are the decision trees in allocating scarce resource?

These questions and many more will be answered by our panel of experts in this event supported by Medtronic and Roche. This event is the first in our series on 'The Future of Health'.

---

The doors will open at approximately 6.30pm, with a prompt start at 7.00pm.
